Amazing Super Smoothie

For those of you who know me, I love to use a lot of super foods in my smoothies. Even though just having a delicious raw smoothie with fresh greens or fruits, or the combination of both is more than adequate, I find super foods super energizing. That’s why I used them so much. Some super foods may be difficult to find at the local health store. However, you kind find a large variety online.

Today’s smoothie uses several of my favorite super foods, plus and easy to find super green’s powder Amazing Grass. You can find Amazing Grass at the local natural or health store such as Whole Foods or Sprouts, even Fresh and Easy. Or, you can click here to purchase Amazing Grass or click the ad on my blog page.

“Get Well” Brad Shake

My son has come down with the flu, and has been craving orange juices. I wanted to make him an energizing shake that would not only fill his craving needs, but would energize him, and kick-up his immune system. I wanted something simple too. The other day I was viewing one of Jennifer Cornbleet’s video recipes called Travel In The Raw, and got the idea for today’s recipe shake. Brad loved it so much, and it gave him energy to finish his homework, so that he could rest for the remainder of the day and get well. (Sorry no picture).

Ingredients:
3 Cara oranges (or whatever type you like)
3 bananas (medium-large)
4-6 oz fresh coconut water
2 scoops (approx 3T) green foods powder (desired brand)
1-1 1/2 tsp bee pollen
8 purified ice cubes
1 cup purified water (more or less for desired consistency)

Preparation:
Peel and juice the oranges. Add juice and some pulp to a high-speed blender. Peel and cut bananas, then add to blender. Add remaining ingredients (except water), and blend on high until smooth and creamy, adding the water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached. Pour into glasses and drink. This recipe makes about 2 tall glasses. Yummo! 🙂

Banana Fuzz Smoothie

Here’s an old recipe that I meant to post back in April. Sorry, no picture.

This drink is very creamy, and pulpy. The flavors are refreshing for a breakfast smoothie, or a mid-day snack. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 oranges, peeled and seeded
2 bananas, peeled
2 large Medjool dates, pitted
¼ cup pineapple chunks
sliced raw almonds, (handful)
purified water, enough to cover half of the blender
1 cup ice cubes, (purified water)

Preparation:
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until smooth. You may add more or less water depending on the thickness you desire. This drink will be very pulpy, but very yummy too.
